Bottle... Poured reddish-brown with a nice forming head. Nutty, toasted malty aroma. Quite malty. Easy drinking. Nutty, toasted grains, a mild hop spice for balance, and sweetness with cereal-grain, bready finish.

Keg @ Sedona. The pour’s medium amber with a small head. The nose is of strong caramel. Hints of cocoa. Pain au chocolate. Bready body. More cocoa. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Light body, moderate carbonation. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours clear dark golden-orange with a small yet persistent off-white cap, some lacing traces. toasted spicy maltiness, few well-dosed caramel and nutty malts, noble grass and savant pepper, soft rounded lager fruity notes, light earthy and floral notes. moderate carbonation, light body - never watery, dry crisp herbal-grassy-peppery finish. circumstantial appreciation: it’s the first day of spring and it’s sort of snowing. highly quaffable and very well crafted.

12 oz bottle from Douglas88. (Name is familiar to skiers who know what a yard sale is; I often help others collect their gear after they conduct one) Nose is nutty with some caramel, and yeast. Rusty red with a medium off white head. Flavor is caramel and a little toast. Nothing spectacular but it is drinkable, a decent average brew.

Bottle The smell is caramel, malts, flowers, and ok. The look is golden in color and has an ok off white head. The taste is the same as the smell but with some sweetness coming through.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Red-brown with good lacing. Aroma suggests sourness and a metallic touch, with little malt presence. The flavor is horrific--a sweet front lasting for just one second, after which this is a hollow, thin, malt water. Metallic, thin palate. I’m very glad to see a brewer making a go of it in Utah but I’m sorry to say that this beer needs wholesale review and improvement.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 12/23/12, Bottled 11/16/12
Aroma: The nose has caramel malts, some doughy notes, earth, and a little paper
Appearance: Pours a dark reddish-orange color with a foamy beige head leaving medium-heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, with a medium sweetness, and a light earthy hop bitterness
Palate: It is light-medium, has a nice, clean feel, average carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Weirdly, I’m on my 3rd straight Reddish beer of the day (not intentional, even though it’s Christmas Weekend, it must just be a case of them all being Winter seasonals). Anyway, this is a decent beer, but nothing stands out for me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts. Very toasted! Flavor is also quite toasted--lots of bread and cracker malts. Slight hints of sweet malt as well. Light bodied, perhaps a little too light/weak. Decent but nothing I’d seek out again.
